A letter released on Friday afternoon claims evidence exists that Governor Christie knew about the George Washington Bridge closings as they were happening, and that he mislead the public in a press conference about the scandal. Matt Katz gives us a what-Christie-new-when timeline. Then: New York State Assembly Member Ron Kim talks about why New York City schools should get a day off for the first day of the Lunar New Year. Plus: Charlie Crist is the former governor of Florida and formerly Republican. He’ll talk about why he switched to the Democratic Party; Mayor Bill de Blasio discusses what’s happened in his first month in office; and background and context for the real-life events in “American Hustle.”
